Kids face many hardships and school supplies should not be one of them. That’s why SDCCU Stuff the Bus is once again collecting monetary donations to purchase back-to-school supplies for students experiencing homelessness to help set these students up for success in the coming school year. The annual Stuff the Bus campaign, now in its 7th year, was launched in partnership with San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), the San Diego County Office of Education in support of Live Well San Diego. A portion of donations will also assist San Diego Youth Services’ various food programs to provide meals for homeless youth.
This year, in addition to the online collection, the community can also make in-store monetary donations at any Ralphs or Food 4 Less grocery store locations in San Diego County through July 31st. To find the closest Ralphs and Food 4 Less grocery store near you click HERE.
Having a backpack and all of the needed back-to-school supplies is essential for success in the school year. A small donation can make a big difference in the life of a student in need.
